I’m Kristin Barendsen, and my business is Barendsen Editorial. I write and edit copy for corporations, universities, magazines, and book publishers. This site describes my writing and editing services and features a selected portfolio of my marketing writing, journalism, and essays. It also highlights the book I co-authored (Photography: New Mexico). Or, you can cut to the chase and check out my resume.

Featured Projects 

I wrote and edited the copy on the Verizon Innovative Learning app challenge website. Kids in underserved middle and high schools created concepts for apps that would solve a problem in their community. Winning teams received Android tablets for each student, and teams won money to fund their schools' STEM programs.


I collaborated on writing and editing the book Standing at the Edge by Roshi Joan Halifax, which was published by Macmillan in May 2018.

I wrote the script for this animated video for Oracle Healthcare, presented at the 2017 Healthcare Information Management Systems Society conference in Orlando.

My essay "Are You Worried About a Loved One's Drinking? 23 Questions" appeared in the Atticus Review in February 2018. 

My essay "The Bear Felony" was published in Gravel magazine in September 2017.
